Portraits in Watercolor Series

Students will learn the fundamental procedures on how to paint the human head, as well as tips and methods on portraying the personality of an individual.  Proportion and Anatomy are studied along with character and color.  Watercolor techniques, such as Dry brush and Glazing are experimented with to give students more exercise in style.  Students will be working from photographs of their choice.
